Housing Law


Our Housing team has strength in depth, so that cases of any seriousness and complexity can be dealt with. Both lay clients and solicitors can be assured of the highest quality representation and advice. A number of our team also had “pre-Bar” careers in the property sector and so are able to bring their practical knowledge of the sector to bear when representing or advising clients.

We can assist with all residential housing and landlord and tenant disputes such as:

  • Possession claims (whether assured shorthold, long leasehold or secure tenancies).
  • Disrepair.
  • HMOs and other licensing issues.
  • Equality Act issues.
  • Procurement disputes.
  • Service charge disputes.
  • Rents and security.
  • Homelessness and allocations.
  • Statutory nuisance prosecutions.
  • Right to buy.

The majority of our housing team are also qualified to accept direct access instructions and either we or our clerks are happy to speak to members of the public to discuss suitability and fees.

We act for both tenant and landlord clients.
